A countdown of John Cena's 50 greatest matches on wwe.com:

 

http://www.wwe.com/classics/john-cena-50-greatest

 

John Cena's best ever match was either against Umaga at the 2007 Royal Rumble, Shawn Michaels on the 23rd of April 2007 RAW or his match with CM Punk at Money in the Bank 2011.

Does anyone have this in list form? I'm not going through fifty pages with a match each..

Eh? No Cena vs Lashley from GAB 2007? I thought that was a hell of a match, especially considering Cena had to work around Lashley's limitations. I still think that was one of the best carry jobs I've seen. I don't recall Lashley having any other real standout matches. It was way better than it had any right to be. I'd have had it probably in Cena's top 15 at least.

Fully agreed. I loved that match. Hardy and Umaga had a cracker on that show as well.

That Edge match was pretty special at the time. I remember John Cena, DX, the ECW revival, The McMahons, Hulk Hogan, Ric Flair and Mick Foley sort of knocked Edge off his perch a bit as far as TV time goes around SummerSlam time. So the pressure was on him to deliver the goods at this PPV. And they killed it. I'd say it was better than Punk vs Cena. I think they got number one spot on. It was also during the time the "Cena can't wrestle" thing was at its height as well, so this ticked all boxes.

 

Mind you, I haven't watched it back so I could be well off the mark as far as how its stands up today.

LOL at the Booker T match being as high as 13. Michaels vs Cena WM23 being seven places behind the vastly inferior Raw borefest is a joke, as is the Batista match from Summerslam 2008 not placing at all.

 

Another week, another shit WWE list, seemingly chosen at random.

 

Agreed. No sign of his match against Del Rio with the collapsed ring or his other Punk matches. A complete nonsense.

His Khali match was absolutely astonishing too, that should've been high. Punk at MITB at 1 for me, Umaga at 2, Leanar (2012) at 3, Michaels at WM23 at 4 and probably that Batista match at WM26 at 5 because of how ace it was for showing up Edge and Jericho and Cena's celebration at the end. Khali, Lashley and Edge would just miss out there but are high up.

 

I could be forgetting loads mind, Cena's one of my favourite wrestlers ever I think. He's had a gazilion great matches and he's done more for so many people than he'll ever get credit for. Anyone who disagrees is wrong.

John Cena is Mr PPV. I don't think there's anyone better when the big lights are shining and the pressure is on than John Cena. He always delivers.

 

you've turned into a paraday of yourself.

 

A para a day helps you work, rest and play.

How's that? Its more than a fair comment. 2011's match of the year was CM Punk vs John Cena. There hasn't been anything better in 2012 than Lesnar vs Cena. Both on PPV. Cena even dragged out watchable matches out of Johnny Ace and Kane in 2012. He always delivers on PPV.
